Theory Department

Our aim is to elucidate various chemical, physical and biological processes from the theoretical perspective using mainly computational approaches implemented for high performance computing, as well as theoretical methods that have constant feed-back to experimental IR and NMR spectroscopy. We focus on problems in molecular pharmacology, drug design, chemical informatics, molecular biophysics, soft matter, materials optimization...
